Title (German)

Luft- und Raumfahrt - Anforderungen an eine Änderungsmitteilung; Deutsche und Englische Fassung EN 9116:2015


DIN EN 9116 defines the common NOC requirements for aviation, space, and defence organizations. Included are the requirements that an internal/external supplier or subcontractor shall use when submitting a NOC to the customer for either change authorization or notification. A NOC informs the customer of physical or functional (including software) changes to an established baseline configuration. Retention of the NOC establishes a means of configuration control and captures the evolution of the part. This requirement is of utmost importance in commercial/civil aviation products where changes to type certificated products are mandated by regulations. However, these same concepts are also required to some degree in defence and space applications per contractual requirements. This European Standard is not applicable to products that are manufactured by a supplier to their customer's designs and processing requirements (also known as build-to-print). Change requests to this type of product shall be formally submitted to the customer and approved via the customer's change request process. Additionally, this standard is not applicable to commercial parts (off-the-shelf items not specifically designed for aviation, space, or defence products) for which changes in product definition is not affected or known, but change to commercial parts that are known (that is, change in definition from one commercial part number to a different commercial part number) shall be processed in accordance with this standard. When DIN EN 9116 is applied to an organization that distributes product, then this European Standard shall be a requirement from the distribution organization to the organization from which the product is procured. The distribution organization may act as a conduit for the NOC or the design activity (supplier) may work directly with the design authority (customer). The distributor should be compliant with the 9120 standard, as defined by customer requirements. Application or implementation of DIN EN 9116 in any form, either expressed or implied, is not allowed for product which has escaped the supplier's quality system.
